“Andersen’s poems fuse the best of Imagism with a heartfelt compassion; with a few well-chosen words, she can turn the rawness and imprecision of emotion into poems that reach simultaneously for clarity and for the reader’s heart. She is generous, careful, and passionate.”
Fiona Zerbst

Ingrid Andersen’s poetry has been widely published in local literary magazines. Her first collection of poems, Excision, was published in 2005. She is the founding editor of Incwadi, a South African online journal of poetry and photography.

“Ingrid Andersen writes poems for an ‘age of loneliness’. With words of powerful simplicity, this book cuts open the heart and mind of the reader, stitches and sometimes mends. Darting lightly in and out of life’s small and lonely spaces and places, her quiet truths offer respite from the world’s noise.”
